The T-shirt I would have made will some people calling HR. Soooo, I'll just say that yes, there have been times some men I have worked with have tried to ignore me and I have had to call them out. Needless to say, I was viewed as a "witch"

I am in the position in my career to never let a man interrupt me and when they try, I keep talking and if they don't shut up, I call them out on their bad behavior "Steve, do not interrupt me. when I am done talking, you can talk" or "David, what I have to say is important, please do not interrupt me" When men interrupt other women on a call - I stop them. When men try to mansplain anything to a woman or POC on a call - I stop them. They all apologize when called out on this behavior but many still keep doing it. Oh well, I am not deterred by their inability to learn :)

I hope this starts a revolution that ends mansplaining and downplaying someone's contribution to the conversation.

Most problems in society, behaviors and beliefs are taught at home. Change the world one person at a time by teaching children respect for others no matter who they are. Be intentional about the subject at the dinner table.

Many men who do this, interrupt other men as well. Women do it too. Not everything is a male conspiracy to keep women down. Hands down, my best bosses have been men who consistently supported me. My worst? An unethical viper of a woman.

Same here. My last boss hated strong women and was a female. She was an absolute nightmare.

I’m on a male dominated team and this is a frustrating reality. I often ignore to avoid giving the situation power. However, I wonder if by ignoring I’m inadvertently doing the opposite. Thoughts?

I struggle with this as well. I just went from working with all women for almost 7 years to a company where I report to a husband and wife team. It does seem to have often. I try to lead by example when I'm running meetings and he's there, but I don't know if that really addresses anything.

Thanks for sharing. It’s tough to figure out the right approach, isn’t it?

This happens to me a lot and a woman manager seems to condone it. When we're in a one on one she allows me to speak and even solicits my advice, but then when I speak in a meeting, she shoots me down or lets my male colleagues speak over me, one in particular. He often makes jokes, is sarcastic and blurts things out. It's very annoying!

I totally started muting men as they are interrupting women in our remote meetings. If they ask, I'll say that I heard some noise while she was trying to speak
